On a professional note

Why Whitefield:
Whitefield is unique in that we educate, pray, and put Christ first in all that we do.

Why I love teaching:
I really enjoy discovering each student's "key to learning." Then I can assist the student in discovering his or her God-given potential to think! It is amazing to watch students make learning connections and apply them across the curriculum.
